 +====== Audio Settings ======
  
 +{{::​user-settings-audio.png?​nolink&​600|}}
 +
 +In the audio settings panel, users can select which audio devices the application should route audio to. 
 +
 +A separate **master audio output** can be enabled to connect to your speakers, or to select as an audio source for a live stream or video recording.
 +
 +----
 +
 +===== Default Output - Headphones =====
 +
 +The device dropdown can be used to select which device to route the default audio output to.
 +
 +This selected device should be connected to the DJ's headphones. Tracks cued using the [[how_to_use_the_virtual_headphones|Virtual Headphones]] will only be audible through this output.
 +
 +----
 +
 +===== Master Output - Speakers =====
 +
 +The device dropdown can be used to select which device to route the master audio output to.
 +
 +This output will be heard by your audience and should be connected to your speakers or used as the audio source for livestreams or recordings. Tracks cued using the [[how_to_use_the_virtual_headphones|Virtual Headphones]] will **__not__ be audible** through this output. ​
 +
 +When using the **Oculus version**, the **Mirror VR Audio** option needs to be **disabled manually** in the Rift device settings panel!
 +The **SteamVR version** of the application **automatically disables audio mirroring** in the SteamVR Audio settings when the master output is enabled until the application is closed.
 +
 +----
 +
 +===== Audio Buffer Size =====
 +
 +The audio buffer settings panel can be used to set the sizes of the DSP (Digital Signal Processing) buffers. ​
 +
 +In general, the larger these buffers are, the longer it will take for an audio signal to be processed, increasing latency. ​
 +For example, a buffer with a size of 1024 at a sample rate of 48000 Hz (samples per second) will take 0.021 seconds (1024 / 48000) to be processed, or 21ms. 
 +If the buffer size is too small though, the signal might not be processed fast enough, resulting in audible distortion.
 +
 +When the //Use Recommended Settings// option is enabled, the sizes of the audio buffer will be set to 1024 for the default output and 512 for the master output. These settings will help in **minimizing the delay between both audio outputs** on most computer systems.
 +
 +If there is still a noticeable delay between both audio output, this setting can be disabled and the buffer sizes of both audio outputs can be set manually. ​
 +The audio buffer size of the master output can never be larger than the buffer size of the default output.
